Milan Cathedral - The Duomo
You’ll be thoroughly impressed as you approach Italy’s largest church. It’s 108 meters high and drips with gothic gravitas. However, it truly hits you when you’re inside. It’s vast. 160 meters long, 92 meters wide and it holds 40,000 people.
The art and adornments that you’ll admire are similarly epic too. There are sarcophagi of luminaries from centuries gone by – exotic sounding names and titles of Milanese dignitaries – and countless Renaissance statues. It even has Italy’s largest organ, which clocks in at a whopping 15,350 pipes.
